And I'm vegan!

It's when they refer to non-vegans as carnies. I thought it was just my lunch group of friends , whom I casually reminded most people are omnivorous..... But I'm seeing it more and more now.

Tiny vent over.

I have followed a restrictive plant based diet for 5 years, and I don't even label myself nevermind others.

I just think it's a weird thing to say.

Never heard that one before.

I've only heard "carnie" as a slur for carnival workers.

Well that's weird. I'm a vegetarian and I'd never call someone a "carnie." That's just weird.

LOL! Carnies to me means a carnival worker :) But you're right. I eat meat, but not just meat, therefore, I'm not a carnivor.

Yeah me too until they said it at lunch one day. It confused me and they had to explain they ment "carnivore". I've seen it like 5 times today on Facebook posts and things and it just irritates me for no real reason.

How can you tell if someone is a vegan? Don't worry, they'll fucking tell you.


I don't feel this way, but I do think it's pretty comical (:
